Free School Meals
The way to claim Free School Meals has been simplified.
From now on, if your circumstances remain the same, a parent or guardian meeting the qualifying criteria for Free School Meals will only have to make one claim for the whole time the child attends a school in Central Bedfordshire.
You will not have to complete an application for or supply evidence of income. The application can be made over the phone by calling 0300 300 8306. The line is open 8:30am to 5:30pm Monday to Thursday and 8:30am to 4:30pm Friday.
